Gender, Power and Political Speech Women and Language in the 2015 UK General Election

Authors : Cameron, Deborah, Shaw, Sylvia

Gender, Power and Political Speech explores the influence of gender on political speech by analyzing the performances of three female party leaders who took part in televised debates during the 2015 UK General Election campaign. The analysis considers similarities and differences between the women and their male colleagues, as well as between the women themselves ; it also discusses the way gender - and its relationship to language - was taken up as an issue in media coverage of the campaign.
